Tropical Storm Nate's top winds reach 65 miles per hour

Hurricane Nate now carries maximum sustained winds of 120 km/h.

Nate now has maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour and is moving north-northwest at 21 miles per hour.

However, there is a large spread among the computer models as to where Hurricane Nate will make landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast between Texas and the Florida panhandle.

The latest weather models show Tropical Storm Nate on a northeasterly path through Alabama, central Georgia and SC - and moving quickly.

The storm was moving north-northwest, "and this general track with a marked increase in forward speed is expected during the next day or two", the hurricane center said in its 8 a.m. advisory.

Federal forecasters expect winds to be between 74mph and 110mph when Nate makes landfall.

Yet another hurricane is heading for the us mainland, with Hurricane Nate expected to make landfall Saturday night in the northern Gulf Coast.

Tropical Storm Nate killed 20 people in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras on Thursday, officials said.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has already declared another state of emergency related to Nate.

According to reports out of Mexico as well as Central America, this has been a killer with plenty of rain.

The centre added metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain to its latest hurricane warning. Nate now about 495 miles south-southeast of the mouth of the MS river.

On Friday morning, the storm was located about 125 miles east-south-east of the Mexican resort island of Cozumel and had accelerated its north-north-west movement to 21mph. No watches or warnings are now in effect for Southwest Louisiana. New Orleans officials outlined steps to bolster the city's pump and drainage system, weaknesses in which were revealed during summer flash floods.

"Life-threatening storm surge flooding is likely along portions of the northern Gulf Coast, and a storm surge warning has been issued from Morgan City, Louisiana, to the Alabama/Florida border". The major concern was that Nate's storm surge was projected to coincide with high tide.
